How will Brexit affect the UK’s approach to combating Terrorist Financing?

AME event

This Thursday, Schuman Associates through its platform Anti-Money Laundering Europe will organise an event on the EU Action Plan 'to strengthen the fight against the financing of terrorism'. Information sharing features heavily on the agenda, with Europol delivering the keynote speech. The vote for Brexit leaves some questions as to the type of relationship of sharing and collaborating the UK will have with the EU. The UK is currently implementing the 4th Anti-Money Laundering Directive which is based on FATF standards and overall financial crime policies implemented by the EU follow standards or recommendations by the UN and OECD. So while Brexit does present some questions for the UK on the future of cooperation with the EU and the implementation of the EU Action Plan, but also it poses questions for the EU. What affects the EU policy will have without the UK setting an example for other Member States in this area? We look forward to debating this new dimension at the conference.
